Fawn/ Faun

What are your thoughts on [name]Faun[/name]/[name]Fawn[/name]? What spelling do you prefer… and is it too out there?

Nature names are ‘in’ and I don’t think it’s any more of a stretch than [name]Wren[/name] for example.

Is it too close to [name]Dawn[/name], making it dated?

I like [name]Fawn[/name], I don’t think it’s dated, and I think it’s really pretty. :slight_smile:

I love [name]Fawn[/name] :slight_smile: I prefer that spelling over [name]Faun[/name] because [name]Faun[/name] looks made up and I think it’ll lead to spelling issues when the child learns that a baby deer is called a [name]Fawn[/name] and it’s spelling differently…

I have always loved the name [name]Fawn[/name]! There’s an author named [name]Fawn[/name] [name]Brodie[/name]. I think it’s along the same lines as [name]Wren[/name] or [name]Fern[/name]. I love all three names actually.

Oh yes and [name]Fawn[/name] is my preferred spelling too. Although I think there’s also [name]Fauna[/name].

I really like [name]Fawn[/name] with this spelling. It sounds delicate and sweet, not unheard of but certainly a standout! I do not care for the other spelling.

I really like it! I’d spell it [name]Fawn[/name].

[name]Fawn[/name] is my middle name and I’ve always gotten lots of compliments on it. I think it’s a great name and prefer the [name]Fawn[/name] spelling.

I like it. :slight_smile: If it weren’t so very different from the name I chose for my own daughter I’d probably consider it myself. :slight_smile:

I think [name]Fawn[/name] and [name]Hazel[/name] or [name]Fawn[/name] and [name]Maple[/name] or [name]Fawn[/name] and [name]Clover[/name] would be adorable twin names. :slight_smile:

I really like [name]Fawn[/name], it’s different, but it is not out there. And I don’t think it is dated at all. And I really like the [name]Fawn[/name] spelling better than the [name]Faun[/name] spelling.

I’ve always liked [name]Fawn[/name]! It gives me this pretty, gentle vibe. I prefer the [name]Fawn[/name] spelling. :slight_smile:

I love it! I don’t think I’d be brave enough to use it, but I really like that and also [name]Fauna[/name].

I think [name]Fawn[/name] is super sweet! I like it a lot!

[name]Fawn[/name] is sweet! I think I prefer [name]Fauna[/name] a bit, but it does have a very different feel and meaning. I’m not a fan of [name]Faun[/name].

[name]Fawn[/name] is okay.

[name]Faun[/name] makes me think of mythological fauns, which are horny little goat men that like partying and having sex with nymphs.

I really love [name]Fern[/name], as in the woodland plant.

I prefer Faunella. More fun for me to say, less like the girl I knew who was born in the 70s named [name]Fawn[/name].

If you’re going for a one-syllable name then I prefer [name]Fawn[/name]. Two syllables: [name]Fauna[/name] looks better. I think the name is “dated” (see below) and a little too soft and cutesy for my taste.

I may be showing my age by saying this but… all I think about is [name]Fawn[/name] [name]Hall[/name], the beautiful secretary of [name]Oliver[/name] [name]North[/name]. She shredded important documents for him during the Iran-Contra controversy.

I do kind of like it but I think it’s quite out there. Perhaps for a middle name? [name]Faline[/name] also gives me the same kind of picture as [name]Fawn[/name] (if that makes sense). Good luck!
